Beautifully presented retirement apartment situated close to Faringdon town centre.

Dove Court is part of a McCarthy and Stone development for the over 55s, situated in the centre of the historic market town of Faringdon. The apartment is situated on the first floor and benefits substantially from its close proximity to the lift and hence swift access to communal areas.

Number 23 is beautifully presented throughout, being one of the former show homes. A large and airy entrance hall welcomes you into the apartment and leads into the sitting/dining room which enjoys an attractive outlook over the communal gardens below. In the hall there is a very useful large storage cupboard housing the water heater, with additional storage and airing shelving and further hanging space.

The kitchen is of a good size and has a range of wall and floor mounted fitted units, electric hob and an integrated eye-level oven, together with a stand-alone fridge and freezer.

The generously proportioned double bedroom has mirror-fronted built-in wardrobes and provides ample space for furnishings. Completing the accommodation is a shower room with a WC and wash hand basin.

Dove Court has a communal entrance hall and a spacious residents' lounge with a lively community. Further amenities include a laundry room and a guest suite which can be used for visiting friends and family.

Outside, there are beautiful and well-tended communal gardens and parking.

The historic market town of Faringdon, dating back at least to the 12th century, has a thriving community and amenities such as the Leisure Centre, Library, Faringdon Community College, Junior and Infant schools as well as The Old Station Nursery, doctors' and dentists' surgeries and a Family Centre. Buses travel from the town to private schools at Abingdon.

There is a market every Tuesday morning and some Saturdays as well as the very popular Farmers' Market once a month. The town also now boasts three large supermarkets.

Faringdon is ideally positioned for the A420, leading to the A34, M40 and M4 and mainline railway services from Swindon, Oxford, Oxford Parkway and Didcot Parkway. There is a frequent bus service through the town from Swindon to Oxford and back, linking to rail services and airports.

The Tower on Folly Hill was built by Lord Berners in 1935 and affords panoramic views across four counties. For over 20 years, the town has been twinned with Le Mêle-sur-Sarthe in France and in 2004, Faringdon became the first Fairtrade town in the South East of England.
